Baja California: the Pacific Coast of Mexico


Publication date 1949
Publisher Johnson Hunt Productions
Digitizing sponsor Castellano Family Foundation
Johnson is another "lost" filmmaker, who worked out of Coronado, California. This film boasts beautiful color footage of old Baja, before Pemex stations lined the Cuota and Libre. Hunt travels from Ensenada to Cabo San Lucas, enchantingly stopping at the waterless village of Magdalena Bay, Tortuga Bay, and the vineyards at Santo Tomás.

This 1949 geography film takes us down the Baja California peninsula and shows us the lifestyles of the people there. With the exception of the modern city of Ensenada, it’s pretty sparse and simple. The film is very straightforward and it provides a great deal of historical interest by depicting its location in 1949. I wonder how much has changed since then.
Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: **. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.

I think a fair number of people would love to go back to this way of life. Simple and honest! Too bad it's gone forever...I wonder how much of the Baja looks like this today?

This material can be very usefull for any person studying the history of Baja California, because there are very few footage or videos of Baja California, and its towns.
